    Default WAGNTAILS pet pro tripping gfci

    So recently I purchased a 04 wagntails pet pro (e350) and if I try to shoreline to a gfci outlet it'll trip the on the house before I even turn anything on? Is this normal? It works in non gfci outlets just fine.

    Appreciate the bumps - going to do some neutral / ground testing over weekend to see if I can find a culprit. I'll post what I find incase anyone else experiences a similar issue.

    That's a good one. I have had GFCI issues but it turned out for me that if I accidentally overdid the amp load enough times I burned out a gfci. I think the testing you are planning is the right path.

    You already have a GFCI circuit in your van. Doubling up by plugging into a GFCI outlet doesn't work. GROUND FAULT CIRCUIT INTERRUPTER looks for a path to ground. If it does not find one, it trips. This keeps you from electrocuting yourself if anything you plug in has a short in it that could ground itself through YOU. Just plug your rig into a NON GFCI outlet and let the wiring in the Pet Pro do its job.

    Exactly. I was a mobile employee and this happened to me. You are sharp zoom.
